1. To Lir They Fell (11:13)
Storm of ages, churn
The sea – sorrow-black
Drown their hearts, drown their dreams
Wrath of the sky, smash ships' seams

Hail, the blackened gale – smash their hearts
Sails and souls torn apart
Down, down, down to drown
Down, down, never found

Far, far they fell
Lir's fathomless well
Into ancient-most fort
To hold undinal court

Hear now his cadence, rolling waves
Mirror of the heavens – their graves
Enter now the deep domain
With father of swans, remain

Lost, lost are my kin
To deep king, now given
Sad waves of destiny
Swept you away – depart for another day

A bitter procession on the shore
Tearful bereaved by the score
Such praises they sang
The bell of sorrow rang

Seasons have bloomed and died
Since my kin were lost to tide
And as I cross ocean wide
I reminisce of homeland's strive

We danced and sang of the blessed home
The solemn hills and wave-kissed stone
On and on and on across eternal blue
Azure hue and endless rue
Drink of sadness as my cup fills anew
Weep of my lost joy as the widows do
Praise the life and memory
Of beloved fallen
Drunk on precious whiskey
My countenance sullen

In the distance, spires of steel
New home awaits – strange tongue pervades

Arrival – all shades of man
Convergence of wayward souls
The builders, crafters, and thinkers alike
Cast away by naïve fools

Father and son – enshrined in coral
Guided me to the hope of dawn
Bid me farewell with legends to tell
Cast off, sorrowed ships, in shores of calm

Survival – my life goes on
Homeland's song rings eternal
Another rippling billow
In time's river ephemeral

Storm of ages churned
The sea – sorrow-black
Drowned my heart, drowned my dreams
Listen well, child – my pride now beams

The gilded minds forsake
Ire cast upon us all
Yet the sweetest fruits
Grow in sundry gardens
